We arrived on Tanna Island via Air Taxi, 10 seater plane from Port Vila. Our accommodation at White Grass Resort in Bure number 4 was basic and in need of some TLC, regardless we set off towards Mt. Yasur. This road trip is not for the faint hearted ( especially after very heavy rains 24hours prior to our arrival) but... More

We flew to Tanna Island from Port Villa. Arrived at Tanna around 2.00 checked into our accomodation and then took the two hour drive to Mount Yasur. Yes, the Roads are pretty terrible but whatever, that's not what its about. Along the way we passed the enormous Banyan Tree and then on to the Black Ash Plains of the Volcano.... More

This place is just magical, walking up an active volcano and meeting the locals (spending a day with a native tribe) was an amazing experience and one I will never forget.

At the end of a 4wd road you ll be able to climb 10mn at the top of mount yasur. Sit down and enjoy the incredible sound of the volcanoe and the light of lava exploding Unmissible.

Do this. It's as good as you are thinking. The 4wd trip from our resort at Ocean Grass took 2 hours each way and is ROUGH but it is certainly part of the experience. The volcano grumbles and "breaths" the whole time. When it explodes the heat you feel coming from it were phenomenal. Be aware there is NO safety... More

My husband & I are sure that when we came some 15 years ago, it didn't take as long to get there. Nor did we go to a Kastom Village & get attacked my mosquitos before we got to the top. Non the less, we came back to allow our boys the opportunity to see this amazing sky show &... More

An amazing experience to watch the explosions of the volcano from the volcano rim. Can only be done when the activity level is 3 or less

Lifechanging experience, looking into the heart of Mother Earth. Went 5 times up the Mountain, every time was different. Saw amazing volcanic landscapes before but Mount Yasur is outstanding.
